I think the projections on those sorcerer windows are done similarly to how they do the cave wall effect on SSE now. It's projected from behind and the screen is painted so perfectly that it looks like it's another type of material. Could be wrong… :)

That's exactly what I was going to say. It looks almost like it's scrim, a fabric that you can't see through when light is shining on the front, but when you project or shine light from behind, you can see through it.


Does is feel different if you touch it? Does your hand cast a shadow?
